My Knitting List

Back!

Earlier in the week we were "Up North" vacationing with my SIL and her family at a cottage they rented for the week.  Hubby went water skiing and tubing while I was photographer and spotter.  One goal was to get SIL's entire family (3 kids ranging in age from 8 to 16, SIL, and BIL holding a 3 year old) up on water skis so I could get a picture for them to use for their Christmas card.  It took several tries but it was a success!

Besides going out on the boat, I finished one book and read another from front to back.  I also finished the first portion of Caramello...265 stitches.  Now I'm ready to start the fan and feather portion.


What would a vacation be without checking out the local quilt shop?!?!  I bought 3 charm packs of Adoring, 2 hanks of yarn, and two 40" needles - one size 2 and the other size 3 (so I have more room when I knit shawls).



When we got back, we were surprised to see that someone else had come back.....our duck.  He had been gone for over a month b/c he molted his flight feathers.  We think he had been spending the night at one of the neighbor's ponds and must not have been able to fly back home.  (Guess for a duck it would have been a pretty long walk.)  We're glad he remembered where home was once he could fly again.  The goose is happy to have her buddy back too.

Glad the duck came back!!! That's awesome!! And woo hoo on everything that you got done while relaxing!

BTW, I would LOVE to see a pic of the family all up on skis! Sounds like a very cool Christmas pic! :)
